Hey Now

Not many awards show musical performances have knocked me off my seat, but this one certainly did: Radiohead performing 15 Steps from their then-new album In Rainbows at the 2009 Grammys – with the USC Trojan marching band. So original and so, so good!

After the Beep

I find this recording fascinating for a few reasons:

  1. It shows just how significantly different it was in the ’90s to contact friends or organize a night out. We take for granted how easy and immediate it is to reach people now via text or mobile messaging apps.
  2. It shows how we’ve basically lost the dynamic and inherent personality (or banality) of spoken messages. Who leaves voicemail anymore?
  3. It threads together such a curious and fragmented narrative about these people, and especially about the multi-dimensional and mysterious recipient of these messages. A cool, piecemeal way for a story to unfold.
